The following wildlife projects are made available through the Extension Forestry Youth program. These wildlife projects are based on fifty-one original Southern Region Wildlife Projects that were created in the 1970s by the USDA and the National 4-H Council. The wildlife projects use inquiry-based learning strategies to develop important life skills including critical thinking, wise use of resources, and communication. The wildlife projects also help youth achieve the following objectives.

  • Help youth understand how our wildlife species fit together in a natural environment.
  • Increase knowledge of how wildlife can be managed.
  • Gain appreciation of intrinsic, environmental, and economic value of wildlife resources.
  • Raise insight regarding wildlife-human interactions.

The projects are divided into two age groups; 9-12 and 13-15. Though they were originally created and marketed to 4-H volunteer leaders, agents, and youth, their use is for any educator, parent, or youth that is interested in learning and teaching about wildlife. Select the wildlife project you would like to explore below. The projects are in pdf file format and are available free for downloading. A free pdf reader can be downloaded from Adobe.

Ages 9-12

Ages 13-15
